Qilian Jade Gua Sha Stone I
Qilian Jade Gua Sha Stone, to care for your body and spirit; hand-selected by Stephanie Chow of Yellow Mountain, in the Gansu Province of China.
GUA SHA is the ancient Chinese practice of scraping a flat, rounded tool over the skin to relax the muscles, and activate flow of energy and blood throughout the body.
JADE strengthens the connective tissues and restores collagen. It promotes healthy skin, encourages longevity, and invites restful sleep.
Each stone has been thoughtfully hand-selected by Stephanie Chow in the Gansu Province of China, and offers a different resonance from those most commonly offered in the U.S., which often lose a lot of their energy in the manufacturing process. Chow then cleanses and blesses each stone to make sure they get to you with the best possible vibration.
HOW TO USE:
// You can use a gua sha on the face, body and scalp, and it’s best to use with water or an oil – but never on bare skin.
// Hold the gua sha tool with the curved side to your face and glide it gently up and out, starting with the neck, jawline, chin and around the mouth, between three and five times per area. Always take short strokes in just one direction, not back and forth.
// Next, press the tool flat to the skin, under the eyes or over any redness, to soothe and de-puff.
// Work the tool in small horizontal strokes over the brow bone to lift, or hold and press upwards between the brows to release tension.
// Stroke down the neck, never upwards, to drain fluid.
// If you want to reduce puffiness, work lightly, then more firmly, to relax muscles
